The Special Issue, entitled “Sustainable Urban Planning Techniques”, aims to investigate the effects of sustainability techniques on the spatial dimension and the management of transformations of space at the urban level.
Particular focus will be put on techniques that can aid in urban planning in the era of the digital revolution and on the use of new technologies not only as tools for the study and interpretation of cities, but also as integral components of the cities themselves.
In this context, sustainability techniques should be simple, user friendly, flexible, and modular in order to be useful for public administrators, decision makers, experts, and citizens. Besides the classical techniques for urban planning, the Special Issue is open for contributions in the following areas:
- Evaluation tools and decision support systems;
- Monitoring, alerts, and management control;
- Support for mitigation and resilience;
- Communication, information, and citizen participation.
The Special Issue will prioritize contributions that combine theoretical reflections with formal modeling and case studies or proof-of-concept applications.
